Can silicone be used in addition to new nuts? i would think that might help seal that opening to the heating element. thoughts?
You can replace the nuts. I went to fridgidaire.com and found the part number, then called around to a few appliance parts stores. Peice of cake, and only cost a few bucks. I don't trust those nuts because they crack, apparently, but the threading is super wierd so I don't see an alternative but to replace it with the same nut.

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start. The door may have been dropped a couple of time before the spring system was repaired, but it did not hit the floor, just a hard sudden stop. All of the cycle setting lights come on when they are pressed except for the start button. Just before the start button stopped working the dishwasher started by itself or started several hours after cycle selection had b

Dishwasher leaking Our dishwasher all of a sudden started leaking. I've taken the front panel off the door and can see exactly where. It's not a hole or anything...it's at the front, left edge of the basin, the bottom left corner at the front.

It is as if big waves are being pushed to the front left corner and over the lip of the basin. I don't think the water level is to

Leaking Dishwasher seems to be leaking. Otherwise it's performing fine. I have laminate floors, and there are water seeping out along the seams of the flooring area near the dishwasher. The dishwasher is captured by the floor (dishwasher was installed first then floor was put in at 1/2" higher level), so we can't pull it out to check where the leak is coming from.

I noticed water leaking underneath my dishwasher through the floor joists to my basement. It was a small but steady drip through the joists. I turned off the water to the dishwasher and the leak stopped. I looked inside the dishwasher and there is still some standing water inside the dishwasher, but I cannot see anywhere that water is standing under the dishwasher. I am wondering if the leak is at the pump or at the door? But I see no evidence of the seal leaking.
